I love the effect of using Hot Foiling. It creates a letter press foiled impression on the paper. While there are specially designed hot foil plates; many regular dies can be used to hot foil as I did here.
Using standard Stampin’ Up! Gathered Leaves Dies and my Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil system I created these beautiful gold foiled leaves. I love the gold outline of the leaves that was created with the foiling so I hand cut the leaves rather than use the dies again to cut them.
The card base is Kraft card stock from a retired Memories & More note card set which I cut down to 5.5 x 4.5. Then I layered the Blackberry Bliss card stock that was embossed with the Old World Paper Textured Embossing Folder.
Some Gold thread was wound and placed under the sentiment strip that was mounted with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The sentiment from The Stamp Market Lots of Thanks stamp set and was heat embossed in gold then dies cut with SU Rectangle Die set. NOTE: this is THE most used die set in my craft room. A must have!
Then I added the leaves and few gold sequins provide the finishing touch.
All Stampin’ Up! products used are available on my online store. Thanks for stopping by!
